Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: Audio Media Player Application of the Year
I have been a fan of Amarok since KDE 3, and I'm among those who were frustrated with the KDE 4 version. I used it for some time - though I don't like the interface and its ram/cpu usage it has some nice features - but I was extremely frustrated with the fact that each new release tented to introduce more bugs than fixed, reaching its height when a release broke the smart playlists. By then Clementine was mature enough to become my main audio player - goodbye Amarok.
Of course there are other audio players that I've tried and I like, but Clementine is the one which comes closer to my needs.
It is good (net\music info++) but on other distros\boards it dose not always do right, like others (that are nice to have around), but; VLC trumps them for my many uses over the years. I have been selling old computers from thrift-stores for years, pick them up for $20 sell them for $50-$150, I could not justify selling them if to old for video\modern-computing; so thank you VLC and Linux!
Clementine bumps my jams, a more advanced EQ would be nice though. Nightingale (Basically SongBird ported to Linux) shows promise but has a ways to go, at least it did as of last summer. Maybe I should check it out again. I thought it was super obnoxious that Songbird plugins had to be ported to work.
